ECD App Principles

I am enjoying the business of running a preschool again. This app – it’s like a computer in my hand. I am saving time, I am learning how to be more independent and in control of my business, and I am getting more time to work with my teachers and the children.

The Grow Meerkat app helps you  manage your classroom, assess your learners, develop your skills and engage with parents. (Only available to teachers who’s centre owners are using Grow Giraffe).

  • Daily learner attendance with a tap
